The challenger bank did not confirm how much the deal would be worth, and there is no certainty a deal will be reached.

In a statement, Metro Bank said in a statement, “RateSetter is a UK focused peer-to-peer lender whose distribution platform could accelerate the Company’s stated strategy to grow its unsecured consumer lending book.

“There can be no certainty at this stage that a formal agreement will be reached, nor as to the terms of any agreement. A further announcement will be made if and when appropriate.”

RateSetter is one of the UK largest peer-to-peer lenders and was launched in 2010 and has more than 700,000 people investing in the company.
